The LG Optimus One P500 is one of the many new smartphones on the market, however it is aimed for people who are new to smartphones and on a budget. Although in some areas it falls short, this phone does offer many of the same features found in higher priced phones. This review will cover some of the phones features so that you can see if this phone will fit your budget and needs.

Because Android is Googles operating system, if a phone uses this OS it will be easy to integrate with many Google features and apps. The Android store now rivals Apple when it comes to offering the largest number of apps, and many of these are available for the LG Optimus One P500. The App Advisor is provided on the LG phones and it will recommend certain apps for you to download.

Trying to sort out all the different apps can be confusing, so this could prove to be very useful to you. Another app that is available is Google Maps which will help you pinpoint types of businesses or points of interest wherever you are.

If you use the Verizon network in the U.S., you might want to look at the LG Vortex which is the same phone as the LG Optimus One P500. This is a good budget smartphone that uses Verizon's reliable 3G network and comes with quite a few features for the price. One example is Visual Voice mail, that allows you the convenience of managing your voice mail so that you can listen to them in any order you want, or not listen to them if you don't want to. One feature that is very useful, but does cost extra is the VZ Navigator. If you want to get traffic alerts, voice prompted directions and the ability to search for popular points of interest all over the country, then this feature is something you will appreciate.

While the LG Optimus One P500 is a reliable phone overall, the sound quality is not always great. This can be affected by the network you are using of course. But it is a fact that the sound quality on budget phone is not as good as one that costs more, so this is one of the trade offs you make. Normally the calls are clear enough, but on occasion there may be a distortion in the background which will let people know that you are using a cell phone instead of a land line. The volume on the speaker phone may be difficult to control although the speaker phone works well. In conclusion, the LG Optimus One P500 is perfect if you're new to smartphones and want one with all the basic benefits without the high price tag. This phone probably won't meet your needs if you want the latest features found in a top of the line smartphone. It really all depends on how you plan to use the phone, but the LG Optimus One P500 does offer good value for the price.

Because the variety of brands on the cell phone marketplace is bursting these days, many people understand that the iPhone gives you the best bang for your buck. Why not go in for an iPhone right now?
